Meet Leigh-Kathryn

Fourth Generation Beekeeper

As a fourth generation beekeeper, Leigh-Kathryn Bonner grew up with a special appreciation for nature. While attending college, she asked her landlord if she could keep honeybee hives at her apartment. When the answer was “no” she turned to American Tobacco Campus, also the location of the world headquarters of Burt’s Bees, where she was interning. The three hives she placed on the roof of that building attracted local media, which led to other companies asking to bring bees to their own campuses. As a result, Bee Downtown was born.

As companies like Delta Air Lines, AT&T, Met-Life, Cisco and Murphy’s Naturals started adding hives to their campuses, employees were eager to learn and experience more about these extraordinary insects. From the excitement Bee Downtown found its sweet spot — creating experiences like hive tours, honey extractions, beekeeping classes and so much more.

Our partnership with Bee Downtown allows us to rebuild healthy honey bee populations in urban areas and offer our customers natural, safe products. Plus, beekeeper suits are awesome!
